Moré leaves the orchestra of Duany and starts his own 'Banda Gigante'.

In flashback we learn of his success in Mexico. Moré is caught in the events connected to Batista's coup in Cuba.

Also, he tours Venezuela, where he suffers the machinations of a vengeful businessman.

After collapsing and being hospitalised, Moré swears off alcohol.

Some years later, he encounters his old band-mate Monchy, fallen on hard times. eative

In 1970, the Foundation was set up to be the nonprofit owner of the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival – Jazz Fest (
http://www.nojazzfest.com) – with a mission to sow the seeds of our unique culture for generations to come.

In the early days, the festival wasn’t the world-famous event that it is today – one that attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors to New Orleans and pumps $300 million a year into the local economy. No, it is often said that at the first Jazz Fest there were more performers onstage than people in the audience.

But the founders believed that Jazz Fest would one day grow into a major success. Everyone involved wanted to make sure that the festival’s proceeds would be redistributed into the local community.

So the Foundation, a 501©(3) nonprofit organization, was established with a distinguished board of directors and a full-time staff. It’s mission:

“To promote, preserve, perpetuate and encourage the music, arts, culture and heritage of communities in Louisiana through festivals, programs and other cultural, educational, civic and economic activities.”

To that end, the Foundation has developed numerous programs and assets. Click here to learn more about them, and here to contribute to the Foundation’s efforts.

    One day a thunderstorm blew up along the Tennessee River. It was one of those moncler down coat storms that make the day go dark and the humidity disappear. First it was still and quiet. There was electricity in the air and then the sharp crispness of Moncler shop online a summer day being blown wide open as the winds rushed in. We threw open all the doors and windows. We found the classical radio station from two cheap north face jackets towns away and turned up the bass and cranked up the speakers. We let the wind blow in and churn our summer day around. We let the music we were only vaguely familiar moncler down jacket with roar through the house. And we twirled. We twirled in the living room in the wind and in the music. We twirled and we imagined that we were poets North face jackets sale and dancers and scientists and spring brides.
